Sydney got her adnoids removed and tubes placed in her ears. I know it's a frequent procedure but I will always have that reaction when I see my child be put to sleep. Sydney has been a big snore(er), girl with many ear infections and illnesses, and recently she started placing toys next to her ear (that was the straw that broke the camel's back) and I went to see an ENT. He saw fluid in her ear (big surprise) and suspected she had large adnoids. So we set up the procedure rather quickly since we'll be gone soon. Once the swelling goes down, I should notice results--no more snoring or apnea-type symptoms. Since yesterday she has not said, "Can you turn it up? What? or Louder." The ENT doctor guesses the enlarged adnoids were blocking 75-90% of her air passage and that the fluid was so thick that it would have never drained by itself. I'm glad the procedure is done and breathed a sigh a relief when Sydney woke up an hour later and was begging to climb and jump of this huge rock outside the hospital.
On a side note, on Sunday Syd bore her testimony in sacrament for the first time. She brought it up to me when she saw my friend bear her testimony. I told her if she really wanted to go up there (I wanted to make sure the desire was there because I didn't want her to go up just to breathe heavily in the mic) she needed to find Jeff (he was in the hall with Jordyn). My other motive was then I wouldn't have to go up with her....Jeff would:) So she went up with Jeff and said this all by herself, "Jesus loves me. Jesus fixes my toys. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen." I doubt anyone else could understand her; she was close to the mic and was breathing heavy. It was still so cute to me and cute that she was so proud of herself. I love Sydney (and Jordyn).
